I have always loved stripes. There is just something about them that makes me happy. A couple other things that make me happy; hockey and my toddler(my other kids too, but I only had enough yarn for one sweater!!). So, when I found this yarn, it screamed at me quite literally. The blue and gold were perfect old school Buffalo Sabres colors. I hope you have as much fun knitting it as I did!

Customize
You can pick your own team colors or your child’s favorite colors. You can run the stripes over fewer rows or you don’t have to stripe it at all. You can work a solid color and a contrast for the band. The options for this top down cardigan are many!
